Who says you can't put bacon and eggs on pizza? Create a new pizza for dinner that's a twist on your traditional "breakfast for dinner." Break off the cheesy crust and dip right into the runny egg yolk!

Did you know that the classic string cheese keeps its shape when cooked? Did you know those same string cheeses make for a fantastic stringy, ooey gooey cheesy inside of a pizza crust? This breakfast-for-dinner pizza is full of flavor and everyone at your dinner table will be asking for slice after slice. In fact, you should just go ahead and make two or three of these pizzas!
